The Navy Revision 6 (Navy Rev. 6) was formally issued on April 15, 2008. It superseded Navy Rev. 5, dated August 2005. Navy Rev. 6 represented the largest changes in diving procedures since 1956 as the Navy made major changes to its decompression procedures using air and/or oxygen. The changes in Navy Rev. 6 "Air" in water decompression are signficant as they eliminated the 10 foot stop by changing the last stop to 20 foot and they added in water decompression for dives that had previously required either no in water decompression or short duration water stops.
The International Marine Contractors Association (IMCA) is to hold a Lifting & Rigging Technical Forum on 24 September in Amsterdam (Novotel Schiphol Airport) with the theme ‘Offshore Lifting: Training, Certification, Competency’.

In an ideal world, all divers would come to the worksite feeling completely healthy. However, just as with any other job, divers are human. They get sick. The common cold, the flu, and bronchitis can all cause safety issues if undiagnosed and untreated.
